This is messed up


Wow, uh, that’s… something.

Is this really a “Classic” Dutch Christmas song? Or is it more along the line of, “Grandma Got Run Over By a Reindeer?”

I’m not familiar with “grandma got run over by a reindeer”. However, everybody knows the song and it is quite popular. It has been chosen in the top 2000 best songs for quite a few years now. The Dutch version is loads better though imo


Poor Flappie! Poor Fluffy!

You guys, I think he killed his dad.

It has its own extensive dutch wikipedia page:

This is really a either love it or really hate it type of song.

I hate it with the fury of a thousand burning suns.

Gotta love the Dutch.
